After Apple gave up its "monopoly" in the field of USB-C to Lightning cables in 2019, more and more third-party providers came around the corner with their own solutions. For example, this has been since the beginning of April Anker Powerline II again available. But there are now other offers that too MFi-certified are. This is particularly important because the cheap replicas that you sometimes come across often quit their service after the next iOS update. Below you will find an overview of the current USB-C to Lightning cables with MFi certification.
In addition to the aforementioned (first) MFi-certified cable with USB-C and Lightning connector from Anker, there is now a revised version. This is braided with nylon and should therefore be even more durable and robust. Both cable models can of course be found on Amazon: each with a length of 90 cm as Anker Powerline II for 15,99 Euros and as a Anker Powerline + II for 17,99 Euros. If you need longer cables or are more of a fan of tizi, Belkin, UGREEN or Wicked, then take a look at the list below.
Using the USB Type-C connector on one end, a current iPhone or iPad can be quickly charged via the Lightning connector on the other. The “Power Delivery” standard (PD for short) is used here. Data transmission can also be implemented using appropriate cables. Here is the overview mentioned above of the other currently available USB-C to Lightning cables with MFi certification:
tizi flip Ultra USB-C to Lightning cable (with 0,5 m, 1 m and 2 m length) - buy here
Belkin Boost Charge USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector (1,2 meters) - buy here
UGREEN USB-C to Lightning cable (1 meter) - Order here
Wicked Chili Cable with USB Type C and Lightning Connector (1 meter) - buy here
Wicked Chili Cable with USB Type C and Lightning Connector (2 meter) - Order here
Of course, there is still an original cable with Lightning to USB-C from Apple, optionally with a length of 1 m or 2 m. The price differs noticeably from the offers listed above. The 1 m long connection costs 21,00 Euros; you pay for 2 m 33,99 Euros. There is free delivery for this, which can also be selected with Prime Shipping.
